How to see Montreal 



MONTREAL, the ancient home of the Huron 
! warrior ; the centre of conflict in the great 
wars for sovereignty over Canada between 
p rance an( j England, is now, with its 
population of 350,000, the great metropo- 
lis of the Dominion, where French and 
English jostle each other in friendly rivalry, 
«■■—— and yet stand united, shoulder to shoulder, 
for progress, development, and the general welfare. 
Montreal offers to visitors numerous spots of interest, 
historic and legendary, as well as modern and artistic. 
The city, which is at the* head of ocean navigation, is 
beautifully and massively built, mostly of limestone. 
It is the great distributing point of the world's ship- 
ments to Canada, the storehouse for the enormous 
agricultural output of the country, and the Canadian 
centre of higher education. 

The selection of the hotel at which you will stay is 
most important, as on your physical comfort will 
depend, in a great measure, your enjoyment of the 
visit. The well-known St. James Hotel has recently 
undergone extensive alterations and improvements,

which place it on a par with the leading hotels in 
Canada. The latest system of steam-heat and electric 
light has been installed throughout, also electric ele- 
vator and fire-escape on each floor. It is to-day one 
of Montreal's most modern hotels. It is conducted on 
the most liberal basis as to cuisine, and the comfort 
and needs of its patrons are well looked after. The 
location is unsurpassed, and the house is a cool, com- 
fortable, home-like tourist's rest. 




Place Viger Depot. 



Visitors will be impressed by the fact that the 
early history of the United States is indelibly blended 
with that of Montreal, for it was from this city that 
many of the strong men of one, two and three centur- 
ies ago went forth to discover, to govern, to trade, and 
to convert. On St. Paul street, just east of Place 



9 



Royale, stood the birth-place of Pierre and Jean 
Baptiste Le Moyne, the men who discovered the 
mouth of the Mississippi River, in 1699, and founded 
New Orleans. Between 1666 and 1668, Jacques Mar- 
quette, the great Jesuit missionary and discoverer, left 
the banks of the St. Lawrence on his voyage of discov- 
ery to the Mississippi. 




The Port of Montreal. 
At the corner of St. Peter and St. Paul streets 
stood the residence of Robert Cavalier, Sieur de La 
Salle. It was in 1666 that La Salle came to Montreal, 
to go, ten years later, on his voyage of discovery into 
the North West and thence down to the Gulf of 
Mexico. 

1 1 




Bed Room 



Near the Place cTArmes stood the house of Sieur 
du Luth, after whom the city of Duluth, in Minnesota 
is named. On Notre Dame street, just west of St. 
Lambert Hill, was the residence of La Mothe Cadillac, 
who founded the now beautiful city of Detroit. 

A little tablet at the corner of Notre Dame and St. 
John streets with the following inscription: "For- 




Mount Royal Incline Railway. 



re tier House. Here General Montgomery resided 
during the winter of 1775-6," — reminds us that the 
city was once in the hands of our southern neighbors. 

There are many others places reminding us of this 
connection, too numerous to be mentioned here.

on Friday (market day), should be visited. The mar-

To the East of Bonsecours Market is Bonsecours

the mountain, giving glimpses of lovely bits of scenery. 

At the foot of the mountain is the Montreal 
Aqueduct, the Royal Victoria Hospital and McGill 
University. This university, which is constantly being 
added to, should be visited ; it faces Sherbrooke street, 
where may be seen many handsome residences. A 
walk West through the residential portions of the city 
will be an object lesson on the wealth of the citizens 
and the stability of the city. 

There are many other very interesting spots to be 
visited, about which information may be obtained at 
the office of the hotel. 

Numerous side trips may be taken from Montreal, 
one of the most popular being the trip down the

Montreal is well known as a sporting centre, and 
many championship cups are held here in various 
sports — lacrosse, yachting, etc. 

Ladies will also find much pleasure in visiting the 
shops, some of which are truly magnificent.

IN DAYS OF KNIGHTS 



The early history of Montreal is so 
divided between that of 
England and France 

That the visitor often finds it difficult to understand the 
meaning- of her legends and traditions. In the good old 
Mahogany furniture for which she is justly reputed, the 
same characteristic may be found. One may find a good 
old English family jealously guarding rare specimens of 
Louis XV. or Louis XVI. furniture, and beneath the humble 
French habitant's roof may be found priceless pieces of 
the old English "Colonial". CLWe have spent years in gather- 
ing together our assortment of this elegant old Mahogany 
furniture. Of course we only handle what is really genuine, 
and its takes both time and money to secure it. We are always 
pleased to show this collection to visitors to our city, and they 
are afforded an opportunity at the same time of going through 
Canada's largest Home Furnishing Emporium. :: :: :: :: ::
